Let's face it. You are only even looking here because of one thing. Speed. The price, no doubt, is a hard one to swallow but let me assure you, if speed is what you're after, this is SSD is worth every one of the 129,900 pennies.

First impressions: This thing is tiny! Way smaller than I expected. Perfect for toting around when I need to travel. The sleek aluminum chassis gives me the impression of sturdy quality, built to last. The black color and sleek design is a definite plus. It does come with a thunderbolt cable in the box which I was quite pleased with. Upon turning the device on for the first time, I was pleased to find that it is, in fact, whisper-quiet. It cannot be heard, even when in a perfectly quiet bedroom listening for it. Perfectly suitable for noiseless vocal takes in a home studio where all your stuff is in the same room.

I've been using the LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 SSD drive as my daily workhorse for audio production for about 2 months now. I am a composer/producer/songwriter and use a wealth of high quality sample libraries for my production. I was looking for a high quality SSD (Solid State Drive), reliable, portable, FAST, with low seek times for streaming samples off the drive into the sampler being hosted in my DAW. All my research led me to this drive.

Yes, my eyes and my wallet shed a tear when I clicked "buy" but I'm glad I did. Boy I'm glad I did. Time is money in the audio world. This is true in any type of production and this drive gives back exactly what you want. Time. Any composer using samples knows the loading times of those libraries is a pain.

Routinely get 1200 MB/sec read and write speeds in Blackmagic test. I use it to store my current Lightroom photography catalog (my archive photos are stored on a large RAID array), and it has noticeably enhanced the speed of Lightroom and Photoshop CC for importing, editing files in PS, and exporting. Plug and play...I simply plugged it into a Thunderbolt port on my Mac Pro, and it was ready to go. I've had it about a month now, and have not encountered any problems with it. Very quiet as well.

I don't do video work, so I can't comment on the speed of transferring and editing 4K.

The only downside to this device is its price. It's not cheap by any means...but if you decide to splurge for it, you will enjoy much faster file transfer.

its fast, its small, the only downside is the price. i recommend when first connecting it, to setup permissions before you start dumping your data to it.

I love this drive. it is fast and has been reliable. Can set it as a Raid 0 or Raid 1. Or rather could until 10.11 El Capitan was released. It is a software raid which has always been configured using Disk Utility. In the latest Mac OS El Capitan, all you can do is write or delete files. You cannot rename the drive, reformat it, nor change the type of raid.

As this costs more than $1200 with tax, I hope that Apple will address this oversight when they redid Disk Utility. In the mean time, El Capitan users should avoid unless they want to use the terminal to setup the raid or have a way to boot into an earlier version of Mac OS.

I'm rating it as 2 star because both tech support at both Apple and LaCie say the problem is because of the other company. Apple basically broke Disk Utility when they developed El Capitan. LaCie has a limited Knowledge Base note on how to use terminal commands to setup raid on this drive. Tech support will not discuss the commands to use in terminal other than the initial setup.

Lacie advises booting to Yosemite to work on this raid drive. I have a USB bootable Yosemite drive and will keep it around so I can work with this drive. Under the current circumstances this drive is not Mac friendly.

I am extremely disappointed with both LaCie and Apple. They have left raid users high and dry. I have seen some suggestions that Softraid software can be used to manage this drive. However, the software costs $180. This is way too expensive for a drive which costs this much.

I really can't say much other than this external hard drive is unrealistically FAST. Currently, I have the drive connected via Thunderbolt to my iMac 5K. I use it as a backup disk as well as a scratch disk which I work off of from time to time. It's dead silent, too. To date, I haven't heard a peep out of this drive. It's also a good-looking device in an all-metal black casing, with the signature blue 'eye' LED. While some gripe that it requires a separate power source/brick, it's not all that surprising considering the power it needs to move as fast as it does. According to my Blackmagic Speed Tests, it averages around 1150 mb/s Write & 1250 mb/s Read - and what's more, these speeds are consistently that high. I'm sure that with the new processors, the speeds would be much higher. The ONLY complaint I have - and this isn't necessarily Lacie's issue, but Apple's - is that formatting the disk or trying to partition is impossible due to a glitch/oversight within Yosemite/El Capitan's Disk Utility software. Hopefully they'll address this with software updates, especially considering that the drive is made specifically for Macs.
